I had the same problem on my Mk2 Sporting while it was under warranty and all the mechanics said it was a faulty instrument cluster so they changed the instrument cluster but that didn't cure it.

Then they changed the body computer and that didn't cure it.

I found that the ignition switch appeared to be faulty and told the dealer but they said it wouldn't cure it.

After a lot of badgering they put a new ignition switch on and everything has been normal since.

There could well be diferent reason for your fault, but it's a good place to start.

Faulty ignition switch's are apparently a known problem.

Good luck
